It was a cold day on top of New England's largest mountain. It didn't even get above zero! That's the second earliest date that Mount Washington had a high temperature of zero or colder since 1948. #nhwx pic.twitter.com/nJMHwnRQeu

Because of course there is. Just in time for Halloweekend, too. Hooray! /s
From The Weather Channel:
What to Expect
Rain and wind will spread up the East Coast Friday through Saturday night or early Sunday. Because it’s late October and not January, most of the precipitation should be rain.
However, parts of northern New England, especially the higher elevations, will see some wet snow accumulation this weekend.
Strong winds will be a concern with gusts to 60 mph are possible near the mid-Atlantic and New England coasts Saturday and Saturday night.
Precipitation could start out briefly as snow in eastern New York and central New England as moisture surges northward. The area of snow and likely some ice will expand during the afternoon and evening hours into northern New York, northern New England and be most widespread across Maine.
The highest snowfall totals will likely be in northern Maine and in the highest terrain of upstate New York and New Hampshire, including Mt. Washington.
Just a few inches of wet snow accumulating on trees still with leaves combined with wind can down trees and cause power outages. This is what occurred during the “Snowtober” 2011 snowstorm in late October.
More than 0.10 inches of ice is most likely in northern Maine and northern New Hampshire beginning in the afternoon on Saturday and ending early Sunday.
In New Hampshire:

If you’re traveling tomorrow or participating in Halloween festivities, please be sure to stay safe. Drive slowly and appropriately for the conditions, give yourself extra time to reach your destination, and if you’re of age, definitely do not drink and drive.
Sorry y’all. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Thank you to folks who answered the call for snow photos from last night and this morning! Here they are.
